Katatjanik Utippalianinga: The Return of Throat Singing
The community of Nain in northern Labrador is rich with breathtaking landscapes and people with a strong storytelling history. Created through the St. John’s International Women’s Film Festival’s FRAMED film educations series in partnership with the Nunatsiavut Government, this film explores throat singing- a special talent and traditional game for both fun and public entertainment, which was nearly destroyed but has since been revived.
DIY Art + Activism with Mary Beth Moores
Mary Beth Moores is a local artist in the city who is highly inspired by women and the lgbtq+ community. She is self taught and has been drawing her whole life but only within the past few years has she really expressed herself in her unique style. In October 2016 she was a chosen artist to present her work in the “Amber Rose Slutwalk” in Los Angeles, CA which is notable movement for women’s rights worldwide. Using her art, she hopes to inspire more women to express themselves and show the true power they hold.
Contemporary Belly Dance with Seraka Dance Company
Composed of professional belly dance artists, Seraka Dance Company performs their signature style of contemporary and fusion belly dance in St. John’s NL. Exploring a range of movement vocabularies and music, paired with precise technique, Seraka has been creating elegant and dynamic works together since 2010.
Music by Yee Grlz
Yee Grlz are a four piece friend band born after a banner year for new faces in the St. John’s punk music scene. Sweet and sour; bitter and salty, Yee Grlz feed you all the emotional favours you might be craving after another day in this tiny town, delivered to you in fast and catchy songs.
